with anybody to get this job done. none of us will get 100% of what we want. nobody should want these cuts to go through. the last thing our families can afford right now is pain imposed unnecessarily five bipartisan recklessness here in washington. the american people have worked too hard, too long to see the official cause yet another one. it seems like every three months there is some crisis. we have more work to do and to just try to dig ourselves out of these self inflicted wounds. while a plan to reduce our deficit has to be part of our agenda, we also have to remember deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan. we learned in the 1990s, when bill clinton was president, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates middle-class jobs. that should be our driving focus. making america a magnet for good jobs. equipping people with the skills to fill those jobs. making sure that their hard work leads to a decent living. those are the things that we should be pushing people to work on every single day. that is what the american people expect. that is what i am

bit longer to get into most of the metro area. so for most of us, the morning rush-hour should be dry. for some of you, it will not be, and i wanted to show you we have some winter weather advisories posted to the west, including allegheny county and garrett, for a combination of snow and sleet before it changes to rain in the mountains, where they've already had some snow. so a little fresh coating to continue. it is possible that in some other spotty areas, maybe along and either side of interstate 81, you could have a touch of snow or sleet or an outside chance of freezing rain. the profile doesn't really look like one that would feature freezing rain so much, but check out these temperatures. it's already down to 32 degrees in places like cumberland and martinsburg, and frederick, you're already down. timing will be important. we expect our temperatures to drop to about 27, 28 degrees in the northern and western suburbs, so that's where we'd have to watch. for most of us, i don't see it getting here until about 9:00 or so, and hopefully by then, everybody is above freezing. we'll

of focus enables us to have that perspective in a different way than if we were running a television network for if we were focusing on a larger more diverse demographic. >> for no wonder if you could address the opportunities you see on the horizon in engaging in a public audience is whether it is the next iteration of crowd sourcing or whatever it is, what better way is you see to engage the audience in ways that intersect in the to double lines that you've described that have impact both on your social consequence as well as your sustainability but it begins with ways to engage them in the journalism. estimate what we are trying to do from the editorial perspective is go to their readers rather than create new products that ask them to come to us. so being very much engaged in a conversation particularly on twitter and some extent facebook is an important strategic priority for what we are doing. we are also experimenting with ideas of trying to use the technology to engage in those dialogues in a way that hasn't been possible something like google hangout there's about 25 folks i

their approach to the syrian conflict does something they could do to reassure the u.s. and the international community, it seems to be another clear implication of what you are saying is that the u.s. takes further steps to support the syrian opposition it would be read as strengthening their view that we are out to get them. >> we are out to get assaad. are we ipso facto out to get adirondacks -- to get iran? are we going to protect the allies, which is something i think we need to do despite the fact that they have a bad record? no one in syria has a sterling record, but it think we need to give them the opportunity to say there is a news syria forming. do they want to be engaged? what is the relationship there? i'm not very optimistic that we could get the iranians on board, but maybe you could find a way to make them increasingly less relevant. do they equate that with a regime change? maybe. we have to be aware of it. i think that's a stretch. i think the iranians could see, what i say is increasing value in the opportunity to talk if they begin to understand that the region is not movi
